The growing need for quality student housing

The growing need for quality student housing

Jun 10, 2019 What's happening?

Already an important property segment in countries such as the UK and USA, whose universities attract not only domestic students but also those from across the world, the student housing sector is also set to grow rapidly in other parts of the world, notably Europe.

Spain, a country already very popular with international students, will play a major role in this, so there is a rapidly growing need for quality student housing not just in major cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville, but also in leading regional destinations such as Granada and Málaga.

Urbania is one of the leaders in this field in Spain, having already launched signature, industry-leading projects in Madrid, Barcelona and also Málaga. The firm is now the leading provider of specialised modern student accommodation in the country, and with so much unsatisfied demand there are more projects on the drawing board across the country.


Syllabus by Urbania

The company is passionate about investing in and development of state of the art accommodation for the next generation of professionals through its specialist division, Syllabus. The firm is active in the acquisition of suitable real estate assets that can be converted into first-rate student housing for the 21st century. 

The projects already completed include Syllabus Atocha Río – centrally located in the heart of Madrid – Syllabus Moncloa Madrid, Syllabus Paseo de la Habana in Madrid, Syllabus Alboraya Valencia, and with the opening of Syllabus Málaga Centro, the prime Spanish student housing brand has launched its first but certainly not last Andalusian facility.

In addition to student apartments, the centres provide first-class communal lounge, recreation, dining, catering and also studying spaces. The Syllabus in Málaga centre for example, provides 143 rooms near the historic heart, riverside, beaches, shopping and gastronomic hub of the city, as well as being close to its main railway centre.

The project features a large, peaceful garden area, a swimming pool and a panoramic rooftop leisure area, and along with it Urbania International is creating a whole new community concept around student accommodation in Spain.
